2017 Nissan Frontier Review

You’ve got a tough to-do list and finding a truck that’ll keep up is job number one. You’re looking for a Nissan Frontier. It’s a mid-size truck with plenty of muscle and towing power to tackle even the biggest challenges. All five Frontier models are available in King Cab or Crew Cab 4 by 2 or 4 by 4 starting with the S King Cab all the way up to the top-of-the-line SL Crew Cab A rugged frame comes standard so you can do what you need to where you need to. Not all cargo is created equal so Nissan created the Utili-Track system to keep everything under control. Inside the cabin it’s a man cave on wheels. Comfort entertainment and cup holders—the Frontier has it all. And with NissanConnect all your apps calls music and more come together on one screen. The available rearview monitor makes hitching up easy and the available rear sonar system lets you know when objects are closing in. Frontiers come in a variety of colors and interiors so you’re sure to stand out in a crowd. The 2016 Nissan Frontier. Tough is always on call.
Pick the Nissan Frontier that works for you. The king cab seats 4 and with no B-pillar the rear doors open wide for easy access. Need more room? Go for the crew cab—it seats 5 and has 60/40 folding rear seats for even more cargo space. And a truck doesn’t have to be a mindless workhorse. Add some brains to that brawn. NissanConnect color touchscreen Bluetooth and more bring all your man-cave comforts along for the ride.
You know safety is first and foremost. That’s why the Nissan Frontier offers innovation that looks out for you. Available rearview camera and sonar makes backing up and hitching up a breeze. And the available automatic headlights maximize your visibility. Never fear the unexpected. Frontier comes with a host of safety features to help respond - like vehicle dynamic control and multiple braking aides. And should worst still happens zone body construction helps absorb the impact while six standard airbags and the LATCH system help keep everyone safe.
Stronger is always better. That’s why the Nissan Frontier features a full-length fully boxed ladder frame. Its rigid construction improves performance on-road and off. Frontier S and SV models are powered by a 4-cylinder that feels like a 6 pumping out 152 horsepower. The rest of the Frontier line comes with a 4-liter V-6 that uses advanced technology to deliver exceptional performance and power. Go where you want to go and tow what you want to tow. The Frontier has an available 6 500 pounds of towing capacity so you can always bring along the right tool—or toy.
